High school graduates--Statistics; Education, Secondary--New Jersey
The purpose of this study is to see if a county with a higher average household income will have higher graduation rates than counties with lower average household incomes, and to see if students who were White would graduate at a higher rate than students who are Black or Hispanic. The study found that average household income is not correlated to higher graduation percentages. Furthermore, the study found that White students graduate at a higher rate than students who were Black or Hispanic. Implications of this study show that there needs to be more focus on minority individuals in high school, and that more knowledge needs to be shared on graduation requirements.
